Hollywood’s big wigs are waking up to the purity and simplicity of young love. The new Rob Reiner movie, Flipped, is just that. “Flipped” is a movie that explores the return to the simplicity of first love as a teenager along with great family values, in a story that everyone can relate to.
Rob Reiner and actress Madeline Carroll will be featured on a live video chat this Thursday, August 26 at 7pm ET on Facebook as well as on the home page of XXXchurch.com
When second-graders Bryce and Juli first meet, Juli knows its love. But Bryce isn’t so sure. Girl-phobic and easily embarrassed, young Bryce does everything he can to keep his outspoken wannabe girlfriend at arm’s length… for the next six years, which isn’t easy since they go to the same school and live across the street from each other. But if Juli finally looks away, will it be Bryce’s turn to be dazzled? Flipped takes Bryce and Juli from grade school to junior high, through triumph and disaster, family drama and first love, as they make the discoveries that will define who they are – and who they are to each other.
Directed by all In the Family star ROB REINER (director of such films as: When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle (Meg Ryan), Misery, The Princess Bride, Rumor Has It, The American President, and A Few Good Men).
